With spring approaching, the weather will soon turn warmer. And when it does, our palates will probably change. We’ll move away from heavy meats and root vegetable soups and over to seafood and salads. 

There are so many fabulous seafood recipes out there to explore, though, that it can be hard to whittle your list down to a few essentials. However, in this post, that’s what we try to do. Here you’ll find some of the best seafood recipes we’ve ever encountered. Check them out below. 

Aegean Fish Stew

The Aegean is the sea between Greece and Turkey, and is part of the Mediterranean. It’s famous for the quality of its fish and its local Mediterranean flavors. 

This stew’s main flavors are as follows: fresh dill, lemon and tomato. Once you have these basics, all you need to do is find some waxy potatoes, high quality fish and fish stock, and you’re ready to go. You can also make a vegetarian version of it by missing out the fish or replacing it with mushroom. 

Deviled Crab

We don’t eat enough crab in this country, and that’s a shame. It’s one of the most delicious items on the seafood menu. This deviled crab from Grits and Pinecones is a case in point. It’s morish, delicious and a definite party-pleaser. 

Fried Fish And Chips

If you’ve ever been to England, you’ll know that it offers probably the best fried fish in the world. Over the last century or more, chip shops have been perfecting the frying technique, battering fish and then serving it with deep-fried chips and a local delicacy, mushy peas. 

To get it right, you’ll need to invest in a deep fat fryer and carefully follow the recipe for the batter. Remember, only choose the freshest fish. If you can get hold of beef fat, use that instead as it imparts a unique flavor to the ingredients. 

Easy Shrimp And Pasta

Sometimes you just want something easy. That’s where a simple shrimp and pasta dish can come in handy.

To make it, prepare the shrimp and then fry them in butter until cooked. Meanwhile, boil some spaghetti in a pan. While it is cooking, make a creamy cheese sauce. Combine cashew nuts, nutritional yeast and parmesan cheese with some water and whisk it up in a blender. Then mix it with the pasta and shrimp and serve with lemon wedges and chopped parsley. 

Salmon A La Pesto

Baked salmon filets are great by themselves, but you can take them to the next level with a big dollop of zingy pesto. 

Making pesto from scratch is easier than you might think. Combine parsley, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil and salt in a food processor. Keep it running until it forms a paste. Then bake the salmon as usual and drizzle the pesto on top when it’s finished cooking. Serve with green beans and buttered potatoes for the ultimate evening entrée. 

So, which of these seafood recipes will you be trying this spring?
